“Quite an experience. Not sure what kind of sherry had the cask before because it was left just the slightlest aromas of nuts and powder. Boom Glen Grant!”
This scotch whisky was distilled on the 17th March 1969 and matured for 40 years in a single cask, a fresh Oloroso sherry hogshead number 2016.
This single malt whisky was bottled at cask strength on the 14th September 2009. There are just 188 bottles of this!
A nice example of nice sulphured whisky. Excellent Glen Grant.

Nose (89): average. candies, spices, nuts, pepper, citrus, floral.
